Anonymous marking

Learn how to set up and manage anonymous marking in your assessments

Anonymous marking allows teachers to provide feedback on submissions without seeing student names in the Cadmus class list or your chosen marking tool (Turnitin Feedback Studio or Canvas Speedgrader).

In this article, we will cover:

  1. Turning on anonymous marking
  2. Accessing anonymous submissions
  3. Revealing student names in the Finals tab

Turning on anonymous marking

While editing your assessment instructions, you can turn on anonymous marking from the Requirements page. Be sure to decide on your marking preferences before releasing the assessment as this setting cannot be changed once students have made submissions.

Follow these instructions to set up anonymous marking:

Accessing anonymous submissions 

When you are ready to mark, navigate to the Marking page. From here click Mark to be taken to the submission.

Important! If you are using Canvas Speedgrader + anonymous marking, please ensure that your Canvas settings are set to Show All Sections

When anonymous marking is turned on, your class list will show anonymised names in the Drafts and Marking pages. 

To reveal an individual student’s name

  1. Navigate to the class list on the Progress page.
  2. Click on the More student options button next to the student you would like to reveal.
  3. Click Reveal student name.



To reveal all student names

  1. Navigate to the class list on the Progress page.
  2. Click on the More class list options button.
